I want everyone to know that it certainly goes both ways. The other night, when I was working on my shoe. I had a question I posted to one of the shoe blogs. Within minutes, you had replied and asked me to send pictures of what I was talking about. I did and you answered my questions “almost immediately” and I felt exactly the same about you. What a wonderful friend YOU are too!

It has been so much fun to have this shoe class going. Not only for those of us participating, but the cheerleaders and well-wishers of the forum and all involved. As a teacher, you have given so much of yourself here to help others. As a friend, you have also given your support and encouragement to so many.

As the saying goes “what goes around, comes around.”

Thank you!

Hey Jordon
I’m pleased to see masters such as yourself join LJs . It makes Ljs a better place. This does not mean I don’t appreciate new woodworkers I’m so glad to share what little I know and be a helping hand .I learn something new almost every day even though I have many years experience. Thanks for your great posts Jordon. Your shoe challenge is a great Idea and can’t wait to see all the finished carvings.

There are very few websites I visit and Lumberjocks is most certainly at the top of that list. So many good and helpful people that any of us can be proud to call friends.. and the vast majority are always willing to help.
Really nice…

I totally agree with what you have said.
Compared to many I am still at the begining of my ability of woodworking, I improve dramatacally every time I get into the workshop. My technique has all evolved at a great pace because of all those willing to answer my ‘dumb’ questions. I thank those who already have and those who will in the future.
I am grateful for those people like yourself, that give their time willingly to pass on knowledge about thier passion.
Thanks again for this shoe blog, it certainly is coming along.

-- Theresa,

Lj’s: I just wanted to say that Jordan inspired me to try carving the first time I looked at the incredible work he does. When he put up this challenge I couldnt sign up fast enough. Jordan: Thanks so much for devoting your time and experience for this project.
Also thanks to all my fellow LumberJocks.

Dennis, I would’ve really loved to see what you would have come up with as I so admire you hand your carving and would’ve wondered what you could do with power. But thanks for keeping an eye on it. I can’t wait for the unveiling of my students works!
